Zephyranthes 'Ajax' is a delightful old rain lily hybrid that is inexplicably hard to find in the commercial trade. Zephyranthes 'Ajax' is a cross of Zephyranthes candida x Zephyranthes citrina that makes a vigorous clump of fast multiplying bulbs, each producing round green leaves like its Zephyranthes candida parent. The clumps are topped after each rain, starting in midsummer, with 2" straw-yellow upfacing flowers. Each flower is open two days...yellow the first day and white the second. Each container contains multiple bulbs. Zephyranthes have a long medicinal history as well. Research has shown that bulbs and leaves can be used to treat cancer, diabetes, ear and respiratory ailments like cough, colds, tuberculosis, as both an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal treatment, and as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (aka: nerve agent).
